So, depending where you are right now, you may or may not be experiencing mitten weather. I personally busted out my H&M five-dollah specials, in wacky chartreuese and magenta and lined in fleece, the other day. Alas, they are looking a bit worse for the wear (imagine that! H&M merchandise, breaking down!) and I'm sort of in the market for a new pair. Gloves are fine and dandy but mittens are way more fun, and you can't do any serious tasks with either mittens or gloves on, so you might as well go with the mittens. To the Internet we go!
Fred Flare mittens, $9.99! Want!
Convertible gloves/mittens, see, are all the rage. These Urban Outfitters "marled" mittens are only $18.
Old reliable Gap has a pair of convertible gloves with a fun splash of yellow on sale for $13.65.
Old Navy sweater-knit mitten-gloves, $12.50. Dig that pom-pom!
J. Crew multistripe convertible gloves, $28. (In case the Fred Flares sell out.)
Anthropologie's $78 mittens have detachable arm-warmers, for when you're wearing a T-shirt under your winter coat and the sleeves are kind of open (a frequent problem in my world).
Orla Kiely's mittens look nothing like her trademark pretty prints, but they do look really warm. Sorta like warm oven mitts. Meh. They cost $279. Double meh.
Crowded Teeth convertible gloves, $19.99. Go outside! (That's the gloves talking, not me.)
Pretty bizarre "two-finger" Free People mittens, $78. Huh?
They also have these striped ones, for $38...
...and these elegant cream-and-black ones, if such a word can be applied to mittens, for $48. Still a bit much for knitted mittens if you ask me.
